I have been working on a new downloadable video training package.  It is roughly 2 hours long now, but I still need to record 3 more parts.  It has been a long process with just about 5 months of research.  It has been a windy road and to see it so close to finishing is just priceless!

A lot of it is based on the roots of digital photography and what we miss when we forget about Black and White images.  As I am putting together this training I can’t help but reflect on an old tutorial that shows the importance of a good quality black and white conversion technique.

This new training I am developing will be for sale very soon and will more than likely be a 3 hour or more video tour through my newest form of post processing.  It is not  for the Photoshop faint of heart!  I will be sure to keep you posted on the progress.  I am more than ecstatic to tell you more, but the good times will have to wait!

For now, check out this tutorial on Black and White conversions.
